If the modern design language that BMW is in the process of implementing on its new cars doesn’t sit right with you, then check out the sleek and understated BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. We found a great deal on one thanks to leasing.com where you could bag this compact executive car for under £300 per month.
A personal contract hire (PCH) agreement, this deal requires an initial deposit of £2,667 followed by 35 monthly payments of £296. It’s based on an agreed mileage allowance per year of 5,000 miles, but should you wish to extend that to 10,000 miles it’ll only cost you an extra £17 a month.
The 2 Series Gran Coupe sits on the same architecture as the BMW 1 Series, meaning there’s a front-wheel layout on this 218i version. Power comes from a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine - the same found on the MINI - and amounts to 136bhp with 220Nm of torque. This means the 2 Series GC can complete the 0-62mph sprint in 9.2 seconds.
Where the 2 Series Gran Coupe really impresses is in the bends however, with direct steering and confidence-inspiring balance. It’s pretty frugal too, with an efficiency of 50mpg on the combined cycle.
This Sport model is well-equipped with a cruise control system featuring adaptive braking, lane departure warning, dual-zone climate control and front sport seats. On the outside there’s a Sport bodykit with chrome tailpipes, 17-inch alloy wheels and gloss black detailing.
Despite this being a hatchback with a coupe-like side profile, the boot capacity stands at an impressive 430 litres and there’s plenty of space for adult rear passengers. Of course, being a BMW it’s superbly put together inside with a real quality feel to the materials.
